Scratched tonight: Vinny Prospal (knee), Ryan Callahan (hand), Derek Boogaard (concussion symptoms), Erik Christensen (knee), Alex Frolov (knee), and Dale Weise (healthy)

STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: A span of two minutes 44 seconds cost the Rangers dearly last night, and they will look to right the ship against the best team in the Eastern Conference. Luckily, the Flyers are still without Chris Pronger, but they are still a team with great scoring and depth on defense. This is a game the Rangers will need to win to show they can compete with the elite in the East and the West. They will need the effort that they showed when they played the Canucks on Thursday night. It’s going to be a dog fight tonight, and should be a fun game to watch.

CRAZY THOUGHT: Dubinsky wins a fight against Richards
